Elaborate Italian Baroque garden with cascades and fountains, bamboo forest and a hedge maze, sculptures scattered in the park, a tiny zoo (goats, doves and exotic birds) and a butterfly house. Innovative design of the garden is prominently featured in Garden History books. I came...More

There are so many beautiful places to visit in Tuscany, so don't waste your time going to this town. It's lovely but not as lovely as so many other places in the region. The gardens are average, go to Florence or elsewhere to see much...More

A must! We visited the Garzoni Gardens as a combo with Pinocchio Park. The gardens are unique and stunning, really breathtaking, literally, as there are lots of stairs :-) Really beautiful and can be recommended.
